Practical Campervan Travel Tips
Nothing beats hitting the road in your campervan. The excitement of heading off the beaten track and setting up home in a new place whenever you want is a holiday like no other.
Whilst we’re all for spontaneity and adventure, there are a few things that you might want to take into consideration to make your camper van trip more enjoyable.
Manage the baggage
First things first, the packing. Now, before you start packing way too many things for the trip, let me stop you, whilst our camper vans are roomy, storage is still limited.
It’s best to pack things you know you’ll need and try and leave out the ‘just in case’ items. When you get a campervan hire from Gold Coast Motorhome Hire, check what facilities that are provided, that way you don’t double up.
Keeping food sealed not only prolongs its life, but also keeps ants and bugs out. A food container is a simple thing that can really come in handy.
If you are wondering whether you can park your campervan anywhere you want, then the answer is no. But the good news is, there are a lot of campsites dedicated for adventure loving people like yourself. So, before you go on a campervan adventure, you can look for a campground along your chosen route, you can even reserve one earlier. Camping Gold Coast here we come!
Take plenty of water. Always be prepared, especially if you are heading away from civilization for a few days and pack enough water for at least a few days.
Stop, Revive and Survive
When you are on a road trip, fatigue can set in. Don’t continue driving if you start to feel tired. Take regular breaks of at least 5 minutes, every two hours. As soon as you feel tired, pull over and get out of the car, get some fresh air and get your blood pumping.
Secure loose items
Check the shelves, kitchen equipment and things that might fall or get scattered while driving.
Make sure you give a copy of your itinerary to someone and check in with them if you plan on going off the beaten track, this way if you do run into any issues, someone will know where you are.
A campervan hire can give you a great holiday with a sense of freedom. Follow our tips and enjoy your journey. Gold Coast Motorhome Hire wishes you a safe and amazing adventure.
